The legal team representing the Azimio la Umoja movement, led by lawyer Danstan Omari, has announced their intention to file a habeas corpus application to locate Embakasi East MP Babu Owino. Omari stated that he has received instructions from Raila Odinga, the leader of Azimio, to take this legal action due to the unknown whereabouts of both Babu Owino and Raila’s private security personnel, Maurice Ogeta.
The habeas corpus application is a legal procedure that requires a person under arrest or detention to be brought before a court. It seeks to ensure that individuals are not unlawfully detained and to determine their physical location.
Omari made this statement during a press conference held at the Milimani Law Courts on July 19, 2023. The exact circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Babu Owino and Maurice Ogeta are yet to be clarified.
Further developments on this matter are expected as the legal team pursues the habeas corpus application to ascertain the whereabouts of Babu Owino and Maurice Ogeta.
